Broadly speaking, Nikon cameras already had enough shadow recovery for wildlife photography (it's very different from landscape in that respect) since the D300. But highlight recovery is a real challenge in wildlife photography (the coot's beak!) in normal morning and late afternoon light. Marriane Oelund mentioned (in that other place) a concern that the D800 might have less capacity for highlight recovery than the D700. Can you reach any conclusions on this at say ISO 800 (corresponding to ISO 400 on DX, same shutter speed and DOF), compared to a D700 at ISO 800 (or ISO 400 in crop mode) and a D300s at ISO 400?
